action adventure character a P.I. with a shade of badness to him
This is the last film in the STREET FIGHTER series. The film features the lead character who in this production is a master of infiltration and disguise. The last film proves to be just as entertaining as the first two. Of note is voice work by GEORGE TAKEI for the english translation. STREET FIGHTER was imported to the USA by NEW LINE CINEMA in the early 1970's. Part of the appeal of these movies was Chiba himself and his unusual fighting style also, his ability to act. There are the other aspects of this film inherent to other japanese movies such as the sound effects (ie. a guy hitting into air and it sounding like bricks breaking etc.) and the prop guns you can tell are not real (this due to japanese gun laws and the need for SAFE blank guns. These aspects make the film fun for english audiences and increase the "escape from reality " feel of the film. This film franchise garnered a cult following and altered versions were released in japan the films nation of origin. Fans of HONG KONG of Japanese action films will not be bored by this third and final film in the series.
